Hypothetically, lets say you won the lottery and you decide that one of your first purchases will be a high-end luxury sedan. But what do you choose? Well if you feel like being driven around everywhere, then you want a Rolls-Royce Phantom. But what if you want to drive it as well? Then you want a Bentley Mulsanne.
The Mulsanne nameplate was used from 1980 to 1992 for Bentley's top luxury sedan and makes a return as the replacement for the Arnage. With an overall length of 18 Feet and 3 inches, Bentley designers had a lot of space to make the Mulsanne very distinctive. The front end has a massive grille, large dual headlights, and the Flying B emblem. The side profile features flowing lines and choice of twenty-one inch wheels that range in design from mono-block style to dual five-spoke wheels. Inside, the Mulsanne is fitted with the real wood trim, tailored leather, and real metal for certain trim pieces. Now Bentley can custom tailor a Mulsanne to your preferences. Want a deep blue paint color? It can be done.
Powering the Mulsanne is the big, bad twin-turbo 6.75L V8 engine with 505 horsepower and 752 pound-feet of torque. This is hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite the Mulsanne tipping the scales at 5,699 pounds, the twin-turbo V8 can propel the model to 60 MPH in just over five seconds. If you're wondering about fuel economy, the EPA rates the Mulsanne at 11 City/18 Highway/13 Combined.
A 2013 Bentley Mulsanne starts at $296,000 and only goes up from there.
